Happy International Babywearing Week!
Are you a babywearing parent? Do you live in Boston? Did you know there’s a local Babywearing group here? Boston Babywearers began in 2004 as just a small group of moms, and has grown significantly over the years. The monthly meetings are free and open to the public. Parents and caregivers join to learn safety tips and the basics of wearing, while socializing with other families. Since there are many options, and the right carrier is a personal decision, the group offers over 60 carriers in a lending library. Attendees are able to try carriers during meetings and borrow their favorites to use at home. This ensures it’s a great fit for their body and needs, and gives them a chance to practice and be comfortable with a carrier before investing in their own.
To celebrate International Babywearing Week, Boston Babywearers has put together great events throughout the week. To wrap it up (pun intended!) there is a bash on Friday with $3,000 in raffle prizes. See below for the full list of events.
